Love According to Science by Claire Kingsley | Book Review*

Oh, you guys know I love a good RomCom, so when I got the opportunity to review Love According to Science I was wicked excited.

This novel alternates chapters betweeHazel Kiegen and Corban Nash as they move from hating each other to loving each other. Hazel is a psychology researcher who loves science, so when Corbon, a data analyst, starts publishing articles online about how he cracked the code to falling in love, but doesn't include adequate research, Hazel calls him out whenever she gets a chance. Then he gets a job at the same university as her and the two have to start working together on a project. Between pranks and an out of town conference, there was no way there two couldn't have strong feelings for one another. And as they start to get to know each other and realize that hate and love are both passionate emotions that can be easily confused. 

This book is a riot. I highly recommend. I don't want to give away any spoilers, but I have a few favorite things I want to share vaguely with you. The first is Hazel's cat, Erwin, specifically how Corbon reacts to him. Let's just say the argument over fat and fluffy is ongoing throughout the novel. Corbon doesn't even say anything outrageous, but the way it's said made me laugh. The second is Corbon's love for penguins. He says they're his favorite animal and then immediately tries to backpedal because he doesn't think they're a 'cool' animal to share with Hazel, but she doesn't let him forget it. Hazel's friends reminded me of my own and our dynamic. They clearly care for each other and want what's best for her. Finally, both Hazel and Corbon are so authentically themselves, even when they face people who don't understand their passions and I think they're very admirable for that. 

If you're looking for your next RomCom, you should check out Love According to Science. It's technically Book Two in a series, but you can read it as a standalone. For more about this book and Claire Kingsley, check out my other blog post HERE.
